Edit Did You Know? Lean found Holden to be extremely professional.
He felt that Holden's considerable talent often went unnoticed, in part because the actor made everything look so effortless. Goofs At the start of the movie, while the officer's and men are marching, they whistle. Unfortunately, while their whistling is meant to help keep them all in step, the music does not match their marching steps. In fact, had they been marching in step, their left foot would have been on the first and third beats of the song.
This is done intentionally to show that at the beginning, the soldiers are disorganised and unable to whistle and march to the beat. When the theme plays again at the end, after the bridge has been built, they all whistle and march perfectly, showing their progress. Quotes Commander Shears : [ referring to Col. Saito, who had a machine gun brought up to threaten Col.
